Panoramic Chateau Frontenac in Christmas Colors, Old Quebec City

Chateau Frontenac is one of the hallmark of old Quebec. It is part of a series of luxurious hotels build by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company (series which includes the Banff Springs Hotel among others). Writing for this text, I looked up wikipedia and (right after deleting a prank in the article) found this trivia I was not aware of:

It holds the Guinness World Record of "The most photographed hotel in the world".

There, I just contributed! And be prepared, I'll contribute some more later. And then again when the Christmas lighting is taken out (that green and red is not the classic look).

Interactive View.
